Lawyer: Azerbaijan Government Delays Payment of Compensation for ECHR Decisions

Baku / 07.24.19 / Turan: The Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe prepared a review of complaints about the delay in the payment of compensation under the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights.

Reporting this to Turan, lawyer Asabali Mustafayev noted that a great place in the review was devoted to cases from Azerbaijan.

ECHR decisions are made up of two parts. The first is the payment of compensation. The second is the review of cases by local courts.

According to Mustafayev, the ECHR considers that if the authorities do not execute the decision of the ECHR regarding the review of cases, it is more expedient to send complaints about this by non-governmental organizations.

Mustafayev also noted that in respect of his 20 defendants, the compensation established by the ECHR was either not paid at all or was partially paid.

"This trend began in 2016, and unfortunately continues. In the end, we were forced to turn to the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, which oversees the implementation of the ECHR decisions," Mustafayev said.

At the same time, the government of Azerbaijan rejects criticism. Government plenipotentiary to the ECHR Chingiz Askerov noted that the decisions of the Strasbourg court did not specify the deadlines for the execution of the verdict.

However, according to independent experts, if the compensation was not paid within three months, then further interest is calculated on it. -21C-
